When you run a dental surgery, a key part of your strategy for attracting patients is going to be related to using the internet. However, it shouldn't stop with social media or simply having a website.
Email marketing is a well-known and effective marketing strategy that involves sending promotional messages, newsletters, and other communications to a group of people via email. It is used by businesses to connect with customers, build relationships, and drive sales.
As such, email marketing can be a powerful tool for dental surgeries looking to connect with their patients and grow their business if it is utilised correctly and not overused to attract patients.
So, if this sounds like something you may want to invest in for your dental surgery, here are 5 benefits of email marketing to consider
Increased patient engagement
Email marketing can help dental surgeries stay top-of-mind with their patients, even when they're not in the office. By sending regular newsletters, appointment reminders, and other updates via email, dental surgeries can keep patients engaged and interested in their services. This can lead to increased patient loyalty and higher retention rates, and it has one of the highest response rates of any other kind of dental marketing, as simply put, it is sent straight to patient inboxes!
Improved patient communication
Email marketing allows dental surgeries to communicate with patients in a more personalised and targeted way. For example, dental surgeries can send emails to patients who are due for a check-up or who have expressed interest in a particular dental service, offering them personalised promotions or incentives to come in for an appointment. This can help dental surgeries build stronger relationships with their patients and drive more business while also not wasting time or money on unsuccessful promotions.
Compared to traditional dental-based marketing methods like print or television ads, email marketing is relatively inexpensive. Dental surgeries can use email marketing to reach a large number of patients with minimal cost, making it a great option for businesses with limited marketing budgets.
Also, while it may seem that investing in an AI-assisted option for email marketing can drive the price up, for most companies it is more beneficial, as it allows for cheaper and more effective personalisation of emails, as well as being able to provide you with information on which options and emails have been productive for your surgery.
One benefit of this kind of marketing is the ability for your team to track and measure the results of your campaigns. Dental surgeries can use email marketing software to monitor open rates, click-through rates, and other key metrics, allowing them to see how well their emails are performing and making adjustments as needed.
Email marketing can also be a very powerful tool for generating referrals from existing patients. By including social sharing buttons in their emails or offering incentives for referrals, dental surgeries can encourage patients to spread the word about their services to their friends and family. This can help dental surgeries grow their patient base and increase revenue over time
